Better Start Working on New Poses

I think I am in desperate need of some new poses, or rather I just need to get more comfortable in front of the camera. I feel like for all of my poses I am looking over to the side haha. Damn bloggers who have this posing stuff down to a science. Oh well, maybe one day I will stop looking like a goof. 

Well I did it once again, this whole outfit is once again almost entirely Forever 21, haha. Whatevers, I love Forever 21 because they have absurdly adorable stuff for super cheap which are two my favorite things. I wore this outfit last week when Will and I went to the big city to do a movie and grocery shopping. We went and saw Insidious 2 which I was super stoked to see, but we were sorely disappointed. Honestly don't waste your money, it really lost everything that made the first one so wonderfully amazing. Such a bummer.
Anyways I love this shirt, but I have always had a little trouble trying to figure out exactly how to wear it. It's all kinds of puffy which I like, but can also be a little unflattering with my body type. But I think with this vest it worked out pretty wonderfully. I think this vest might be one of my best purchases over because c'mon look how cute it is, haha.

The weather has been so absolutely lovely as of late, it has been wonderful. We've been leaving the windows open all day which is one of my favorite things to do. I love having a cool breeze flowing through the house. I'm really hoping this wonderful weather keeps up when our friends come for a visit in a couple weeks.

x's and o's


  1. I love your poses :) That horse shirt is pretty cool.

  2. Love the vest!! I've been looking for one!

  3. Forever 21 had a ton of different styles last time I looked.

  4. I love this outfit! And I'm awful at poses - I'm always like hand on the hip, big cheesy smile, so at least you're looking more natural than I do lol


  5. hahaha! Have you noticed I do the same thing?! I'm always looking down and to the side! Gotta. Stop!
    You look adorable though, I LOVE this outfit, so much!

  6. Cute! I keep thinking about taking the occasional outfit post, but I worry about the same thing! I look so awkward whenever I try to pose. ;)

  7. Maybe you could take photos of you doing your daily chores? It might feel more natural.

  8. That shirt is so cute! I love how you styled it here and think it would also look adorably tucked into a pretty skirt. I hope the nice weather keeps up for you!

  9. you are so stinkin darling!
    Forever 21 has gotten soooo loud right? Maybe it's just because I'm an old mom now, but I'll go in and immediately have to walk out because my ears are bleeding from the blasting techno. Lol
    They do have cute stuff though! I miss shopping.

  10. YES! Oh my word, and I feel like I've never heard any of the artists playing in the stores. I tend to feel like a bit of a fuddy-duddy when I actually go into a store, haha. Glad I'm not the only one :)

  11. You look so amazing Amanda! Really love your horse printed shirt <3

  12. I know how u feel!! I'm a photographer and find it really hard being on the other side of the camera! I'm like, what do I do with myself?!


  13. ooo, that shirt is just so adorable! Also, those booties are just so perfect!



  14. I LOVE that top- I really can't resist animal prints. I have those exact same boots too :) The weather looks perfect where you are, the backdrop is gorgeous, and I love your fall ensemble!

  15. I absolutely love this outfit. I am wearing pretty much the same top today minus the horses... which i guess is the main event of your top so not really the same top at all! haha Anyways! Great outfit and now I'm going to target to go shoe shopping...


Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello! I love reading each and every comment!
